    Originally built in 1908 to house one of Argentina’s first flour mills, the building that houses the FAENA ARTS CENTER offers a rich historical backdrop for the myriad expressions of contemporary art. The main exhibition space, located in what was once the mill’s machine room, has been painstakingly rebuilt while retaining original details from the early 1900s, when the mill turned out up to one thousand tons of ground wheat per day. Soaring ceilings, semicircular arches, bay windows and other hallmarks of turn-of-the-century industrial architecture serve to create a spacious, light-filled environment for a rotating array of international artists.
